Questions 3: How Was 2022?

Looney Tunes!

Well, I talked about my 2022 this past Monday.  So . . . Let’s see how everyone else made out this year.  Wait . . . I think I remember this going south a bit last year.  No politics!  Now for the questions.

  1. What was your favorite part of 2022?
  2. What was your least favorite part of 2022?
  3. What was the most unexpected part of 2022?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    1. I had a lot of interesting freelance projects that kept me busy. Had great times with family and friends.
    2. The passing of dear friends. A lot of grief this year. Some many people lost parents and siblings.
    3. The long wait I’ve endured for something I hope to announce (and thought I would by now) in the coming year.

  2. 1) What was your favorite part of 2022?
    Getting to read my work on the radio.

    2) What was your least favorite part of 2022?
    My father’s health visibly declining. He’s 94, so you know the inevitable, but it’s still hard to watch.

    3) What was the most unexpected part of 2022?
    I can’t think of anything for this one. There weren’t too many surprises for me, I guess.

  3. My favorite part of 2022 was binge-watching the show Yellowstone. My least favorite part was the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The most unexpected was how quickly the cost of living jumped as a result of some pretty reckless government spending.

    • The Russian thing was definitely bad. As far as the rise in cost of living . . . You really think that just started this year? My generation has been complaining about that for a lot longer than this administration. Heck, that’s been a looming problem since the 1980’s. I mean, there’s a reason many in my generation don’t have houses or are so depressed about our existence.

      • Sadly, the last two years have been the worst since the 80s.

      • From my experience, that isn’t even remotely true. It just means your getting a taste of what my generation has had to deal with since we became adults. I mean, nothing that has been in the last 2 years has done more damage than stagnant wages, insane housing costs, student debt, and a whole horde of problems that prevents younger generations from even coming close to the opportunities our parents had. Most of the doors were closed for my generation before we even got to the starting line. None of that happened in the last two years. Most of it stems from the stuff that Reagan kicked off.

      • You describe the last two years perfectly.

      • Okay. I have to say it. Just say Biden and the democrats. Even though the last two years show the effect of Trump’s actions because it takes time for presidential decisions to really hit. Even so, that still ignores all the fucking shit that has shoveled since Reagan got the ball rolling to destroy the middle class. If you haven’t noticed that until the last two years then you are incredibly lucky.

      • I didn’t intend this to be a political discussion. My point is economic. The Biden administration is responsible for curtailing oil production and for flooding the economy with free money. Curtailing oil production affects supply, which then places pressure on demand. Also, the US was, prior to this move, self-sufficient and now must compete on the open market for whatever price is available. You have not seen the end to price increases or higher consumer prices.

      • It became political as soon as you mentioned the government. You’re also wrong on the oil. It’s a fact that Biden gave out a bunch of drilling contracts or whatever they are. It was the companies that minimized production to keep supply low. Also Russia and Saudi Arabia curtailed their production to hurt the US because they know Americans always blame the President for such things. As for free money into economy, I haven’t seen anything about that beyond corporate bailouts (useless) and money towards children (useful). I have heard certain news organizations and talking heads say what you’re saying with cherry picked facts and a desire to keep this country in the gutter.

        The US hasn’t been self-sufficient in decades. Once factory jobs went overseas, we became dependent on the world market. Again, other countries and entities openly charge higher here because they know we’ll pay. They know we won’t go through a period of difficulty to force them to change. We are a country of blinded morons who gladly chop off our noses to spite our faces and claim we’re smart. I’ve seen that for decades and it became worse once certain mentalities bubbles up to society’s surface.

        I see gas prices going down here. Yet I know they’ll go up alongside everything else. Not because of Biden, but because this country is controlled by greedy, heartless, evil assholes who have more money than some countries. They will always play the game and get their pet ‘newscasters’ to manipulate the populace. They don’t even hide their intentions and actions anymore because too many people are easily distracted.
